Don’t Touch My Stomach

Don’t Touch My Stomach

My pregnant belly is not your pregnant belly In the last week I've had quite a few people tell me that now I look pregnant. There's definitely no more hiding my little bean behind loose tops and long scarves. Every day it gets a little bit bigger, and those heartwarming baby kicks get a little [...]

Going Suburban

Going Suburban

I never thought I'd leave Kitsilano, and here I am in Walnut Grove! It's now been just over two and a half weeks since I've moved out of Vancouver and into the quaint Township of Langley. Life has been pretty busy, what with the unpacking, and sorting of stuff, IKEA runs to pick up more [...]

The Halfway Point

The Halfway Point

20 weeks down, 20 (or so) more to go! I can't believe that I am halfway through my pregnancy! My belly is now undeniable, though if you ask my mother, she'll say I just look like I've eaten too much cabbage. Though it's still quite small, I'm loving wearing tighter tops to show it off. [...]

Pregnancy Cravings & What I Ate

Pregnancy Cravings & What I Ate

As a vegan, I get asked a lot about what I eat. It's funny because as soon as you tell someone you're vegan, they're suddenly very concerned about what you're eating. Where do you get your protein? But how do you not eat cheese? What DO you eat? All common questions that come up. When [...]

My First Trimester

My First Trimester

This Saturday marks the 16th week of my pregnancy. To think that just a few weeks ago I was dry heaving on my drive home from work! Ah the first trimester! What an uncomfortable point of pregnancy. My experience was not the worst case scenario. Sure, there was some puking, lots of napping, and a [...]
